Duplicate Menu Entries In Same Bottle

I have the Tortoise SVN program installed in a bottle menu on Fedora 14. I recently updated it from 1.6.15 to 1.6.16 using Tortoise's MSI. After running the update I have duplicate menu entries in my Applications -> Windows Applications -> TortoiseSVN menu. I think the problem may be because I have both TortoiseSVN.lnks in the cxmenu tree and entries in the cxmenu tree.

I have tried recreating the menus for my TortoiseSVN bottle with no luck.

I'm getting prompted by TortoiseSVN to update again, but am reluctant to get a 3rd set of programs in my menu.

Any ideas?

What exactly are you referring to by "cxmenu tree"? Do you mean the menu editor inside Manage Bottles>Control Panel? If not, can you use the menu editor to disable the duplicates as a workaround?

Also, if you go into


Do you have multiple StartMenu directories? Or perhaps multiples of directories or lnk files somewhere therein that could be removed, and then refresh the menu itself with a logout/login?

Thanks for the quick response. I just renewed and installed Crossover Pro 10.1.0, logged out and in, tried rebuilding the menu with cxmenu and checked the bottle contents for duplicate files and links. No luck. I don't know if the screenshot image will make it, but here it is. [image=file:///home/hgoldschmitt/Desktop/Screenshot.png]

I'm afraid that screenshot didn't go through.

Looking at your first post, I see you updated from Tortoise 1.6.15 to 1.6.16 using Tortoise's MSI. This seems perhaps overly simplistic, but is it possible that you've actually got two separate Tortoise bottles, i.e. a new one was created during your installation of 1.6.16?

How did you go about re-creating the menus, in the first place? Just using "cxmenu" in terminal? Did you manually go into Manage Bottles>Control Panel>Edit Menus and disable/re-enable the menu items? If not, can you check out that Edit Menus section and see if there are duplicate items, within, that you can manually turn off?
